Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A Watershed is, in simplest terms, the area of land from which precipitation or surface water flow is drained into a receiving water body. The term is roughly analogous to "drainage basin", and are often used either interchangeably. While primarily describing the geologic/geographic drainage patterns of water, a more holistic view of the word watershed incorporates all the biotic and abiotic communities and processes contained in the drainage basin. Therefore a watershed may be referred to as the sum of the area, drainage patterns, and environment of a given waterway or waterway segment.

The main articles in the category are Drainage basin and Endorheic basin
